Chipheads: Hands-On PDN Impedance & Calibration Basics
You have probably heard of calibration, de-embedding, and fixture removal for network analyzer measurements, but do you know how to do it for a 2-port shunt low impedance measurement? Impedance measurements are a must have skill for Power Integrity engineers. The measurements provide models for Capacitors, Resistors, and Inductors that work in both time and frequency domain simulations. Impedance measurements are also critical for verifying the performance stability of a power delivery network (PDN).
In this session you'll learn the difference between these terms. You'll learn, with demonstrations, how to remove the impact of fixturing using calibration and de-embedding steps. The process works for both connectorized devices, or with PCB browser probes to provide accurate measurements that are compatible with your PCB EM simulator.
